Foxes in Fiction+ Benoît Pioulard: "Ground glass" (Limited 7 inch) by woolrecordings published on 2013/01/16 09:16:15 +0000 Warren Hildebrand (aka Foxes in Fiction) and Thomas Meluch (aka Benoît Pioulard) have been acquaintances for a number of years, brought together by their shared presence on Brooklyn's Moodgadget imprint. Meluch's first-ever release was the Enge 7" (2005) for that label, and Hildebrand later made a splash with his debut LP Swung from the Branches (2010). During a solo tour of North America in 2010, Meluch played Hildebrand's hometown of Toronto and invited him along on the following day's journey to Montreal, during which the two became fast friends and the idea of a collaboration began to take shape. Some months later they finally began exchanging songs and files, eventually building up to the two epic pieces heard on this, their debut 7" for Wool Recordings. "Since a young age, Thomas Meluch has been fascinated by natural sounds and the textures of decay. He began playing piano before his feet could reach the pedals, and for more than a decade has sought to create a unique sonic environment by combining remnants of pop song structures with the lushness and unpredictability of field recordings. A veteran drummer of a half dozen bands and an avid collector of instruments and analog devices, Meluch relies on guitar and voice as the bases for his work as Benoît Pioulard."
